Chart Industries, Inc. has received a $135m order for the cold box and brazed aluminium heat exchanger equipment content on Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass liquified natural gas (LNG) export terminal project.
On 19th March (2019), the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved Venture Global LBG Inc.’s request to proceed with full site preparation as it proposed 10 million tonnes per annum export terminal in Louisiana.
The booking of the full order for the Calcasieu project is the next step following Chart’s previously announced letter of intent from Baker Hughes, a GE company’s Turbomachinery and Process Solutions business for the full equipment offering of 18 cold boxes and heat exchangers for Calcasieu.
Chart will deliver the equipment on a multi-year schedule in conjunction with Baker Hughes, GE and Kiewit.
“We are fully prepared to begin building the heat exchanger and cold boxed for the Calcasieu Pass project in our La Crosse, Wisconsin and New Iberia, Louisiana facilities,” said Jill Evanko, Chart’s President and CEO.
“We are pleased to be working with strong partners on this project, and thanks the Venture Global team for their confidence in Chart. We are excited about this project as well as the upcoming potential build of the Plaquemines’ terminal, which is slated to be double the MTPA of Calcasieu,” Evanko concluded.
